, the secretary of defense revealed after five months that while four americans died tragically, president obama and hillary clinton were awol and the defense department and the joint chiefs of staff were apparently unable to do anything to save our boys. tough story. we'll talk about it. "the kudlow report" begins right now. >>> first up the big story this evening. the northeast getting pounded with snow. nbc's jay gray is in boston, and that's still expected to be where the worst of it will happen. jay, governor patrick in massachusetts ordered all cars off the road at 4:00 p.m. today. does it look like people are following that order? >> reporter: hey there and good evening from boston. yeah, for the most part it looks like people are complying with that order to stay off the roadways. from our vantage point over the last couple of hours all we've seen are plows, sanding trucks and emergency officials out. that's good news. it means people are listening. they're inside their homes and trying to ride this storm out. look, this may be the hardest-hit area in this blizzard. forecasters saying we

. this is the same chuck hagel who is president obama's nominee for defense secretary now and who john mccain spent the day today vilifying and attacking as manifestly unqualified for that job. back in the day john mccain not only was kind of best buddies with chuck hagel, but he specifically said that he thought chuck hagel would make an awesome defense secretary someday. >> as far as secretary of defense is concerned, there's a lot of people that could do that. one of them i think is senator chuck hagel. >> john mccain and chuck hagel were so close that in 2000, when john mccain realized that he was not going to get the presidential nomination, when john mccain decided he had to give up that bitterly fought nomination battle, the person his campaign put out to speak to the press the day he made his decision to withdraw was his dear friend, old chuck. >> two aides tell nbc news that the arizona senator will announce a suspension of his quest for the white house. back in arizona after his crushing defeat on super tuesday mccain called supporters to thank them. >> we're glad to be home. >> nebraska
in a high profile murder trial in phoenix again testified in her own defense. her name is jody areas. she admits now she killed her ex-boyfriend stabbed him and slashed him over and over, shot him in the head and for good measure cut his throat from ear to ear. that was all back in 2008. prosecutors say she did it because she was jealous he was planning a trip with another woman. but she claims it was self-defense. and when she first unexpectedly took the stand yesterday, she explained why she once said no jury will ever convict me. >> i made that statement in september 2008, i believe it was. and at the time i had plans to commit suicide. i was very confident that no jury would convict me because i planned to be dead. >> shepard: you may have noticed the defendant has changed her appearance quite a bit since the time of the crime. back then, when this happened, photos show she was a blonde bombshell to hear it from many. now the confessed killer is a demuir brunette with glasses. perhaps a little image work there for the jury. but will it help save her life? this is a capital murder case
hill right now. president obama's pick for defense secretary might actually prefer an old code pink filibuster over the surprising delay he is stuck in now. the chuck hagel nomination seemed like it was done. enough republicans had said they would support mr. hagel's nomination. enough republicans had agreed that they should not filibuster him. but he looked ready to be confirmed by the senate. but now it is not clear when that vote might happen, even though if the -- even though the outcome of that vote is a foregone conclusion. the senate armed services committee has now put off its vote on mr. hagel. and that's because 23 senate republicans are demanding that chuck hagel provide specific financial information about private corporations where he has served on the board. not information about the money he made but information about the corporations themselves. the senators are also demanding that chuck hagel give them copies of every speech he has made in the past five years, including notes you utilized for preparation or in giving the remarks, to which former senator hagel has re
all of it came from the government cutting back, mostly because of cuts in defense spending. if government spending simply had not changed, the economy wouldn't have shrank at all. there is a lesson here, austerity has been hurting obama's economy, for the last four years. government spending has gone down in ten of the last 12 quarters. under ronald reagan and george w. bush you will find this part of economic growth and spending is pretty much all growing under the two republicans. you can see it under the graph. under reagan, it added in his first term a bit more than 6/10th of a percentage point, under bush, about half a point. under obama, it has been negative. if obama is a socialist he is terrible at it. here is the interesting thing, if the economy is shrinking because the economy is shrink, we now added new jobs, almost 200,000 jobs in december. and we added more than 150,000 jobs in january. what is amazing about this, this period was fiscal cliff element, it was what everybody was saying the economy really needed was deficit reduction. and this is a period in whic
rhetoric. romney was unwilling to cut defense, he said nothing about social security. it has to be means tested, he danced around medicare that is a monster that is out of control, only program he was willing to name he would actually cut was big bird stipend if you remember. charles: you started talking about a housing bubble. now for many, we have only just hitterra firma, -- terra firma, but you say already that is a bubble. if that is so is the only bright spot in the economy we're in trouble. >> it is just the same money printing by the fed, if we lock at these markets that were badly injured, during the bust. phoenix, and southern california, florida, this is all, you know hedge fund money. lbo money, fast money coming in buying them by the dozens and hundreds, they are in their for a trade, this is not healthy. these are single family homes spread out in former subprime neighborhoods, there has never been in last 50 years any real economy basis for insteadal visitors -- institutional investor on wildcats to own single family homes in scottsdale, this is easy money, chasing prices
spending on defense really collapsed and helped bring down yesterday's gdp. >> yes, it did. >> so all the liberals are saying see, we told you so, if you cut spending, you're going to ruin the economy. do you believe that? >> no, not at all. government spending is taxation. milton always said it. the government redistributes resources. you can see it really clearly. two-person world, farmer a and farmer b, if farmer b gets unemployment benefits, who do you think pays for them, farmer a? you know, government spending is taxation. the reason we have the great recession is because of the government spending, not in spite of it. >> follow-up. it would be bullish for economic growth. >> yes, it would. >> but this is the argument i get. it shows up as a negative in the gdp accounts. at least some of it. >> you're right. >> so what do you do? do you just go on ahead and cut government spending? and let the gdp accounts do what they're going to do? >> the gdp accounts will grow better doing that. that's just the direct effect of spending there. but imagine if we had 100% of gdp on government
of the american right poured over today in hearings on chuck hagel's nomination to be secretary of defense. hatred, pure and simple. from the mouths of john mccain and lindsey graham as they slashed away at war hero hagel. badgering the witness is too nice a description. the hawks swirled like buzzards sweeping down, pecking and pulling at the skin of a former colleague who dared to say this country's been too ready to enter wars the american people quickly wish we'd never gotten into. what's with this hatred now centered in the american sunbelt? what do we make of this poll that shows two out of three texas republicans now want our president impeached? why the cussedness, why the range war, why the hatred of anyone who dares to stand with obama? why can't politics be a matter of belief and honest disagreement, not hatred? why the sick little intramurals we saw today? we begin with senator jeanne shaheen of new hampshire. i want you to watch this back-and-forth between john mccain and the witness today, chuck hagel. let's take a look. >> were you correct or incorrect when you said that the surge w
unequivocally why diplomacy and development are right up there with defense. how when we think about who we are as americans, it's because we are united and committed across our government to do whatever is required to fulfill the missions we have assumed as public officials and public servants. >> right up there with defense. that is one of the big ideas of the obama presidency, right? essentially, reorienting how america deals with the world away from the u.s. military and toward u.s. diplomacy. to upscale our soft power capacity as a country so we have more options beyond just the option of force. this president did a lot to advance that idea simply by putting somebody as high profile as hillary clinton in the job of america's head diplomat. but the overall goal of upscaling state, upscaling diplomacy and development so they are right up there with defense, like she said today, that is widely regarded as a goal that is not yet realized. secretary clinton alluded to that fact today when she said she now plans to become an advocate for that cause from the outside. it is, frankly, easy to i
of the defense department, that's the highest level of the american military system, would be involved in this? >> yeah, that's extremely unusual, you're right, erin. there were also reports of unmanned surveillance, drones, that have been used. that hasn't been concerned. but it gives you a sense there was from the highest levels a very strong commitment and feeling of sympathy for the little boy and trying to get it resolved in a way where he was safe and that's what happened. >> martin savidge, thank you very much. everyone i know has been talking about the little boy and what it was like for him down in the darkness in that bunker. i want to bring in a psychiatrist and director of children's services for l.a. county hospitals, along with tom fuentes, a contributor for us. we know the ending here now. at least before the child begins his healing process, the child is physically safe. the kidnapper is dead. how could investigators have accomplished this without harming the child? >> it would have taken a great deal of planning and still. in the case of the fbi hostage team, they plan full-ti
's the only way we'll get the kind of defense cuts that we really need to get and we need to take our medicine. >> what i'm hearing is you disagree with the president and you're saying take the $85 billion now and sign on to as per the law just stop belly aching, you'll have $1.2 trillion of budget cuts over the next ten years. that's going to be law. and you're saying the president go on ahead and do it and stop belly aching. >> no, that's not what i'm saying. what i'm saying is -- it's not that i disagree with the president. it would be xwragreat if he cou come up with the solution. but that won't happen. we don't have the leverage anymore. the fact is we're probably going to go over the cliff. i think any deal that he could negotiate with the republicans would actually be worse from my point of view as a democrat than going over the cliff. because we're never going to get the kind of defense cuts that are envisioned in the sequester if you negotiate a deal with the republicans. >> senator hutch in-so thinson,s have dire consequences when we cut spending. in his book, we don't have dire cons
obama's nomination for defense secretary. farmer senator chuck hagel and got tough questions from vietnam veteran and fellow republican. john mccain asking hagel to admit he was wrong when he opposed the surge to the 30,000 troops to iraq in 2007. >> if you would like me to explain. >> i'd like an answer. yes or no. >> i'm not going to give you a question or no. it's par mu complicated than. thatly defer that judgment to history. >> history already made a judgment on the surge and you are on the wrong side of it. >> shepard: democrats defended him. >> i never had the pleasure of serving with you, which i wish i would have. we had a great conversation. you bring a fresh, breath of fresh air, truly a breath of fresh air to the process. >> if confirms senator hagel will be the first vietnam veteran and first enlisted soldier of any kind to be the defense secretary. >> he asked him to look at the entire record. mike emanuel on capitol hill tonight and some comments are getting more attention tonight. >> that is right. senator chuck hagel had a lot to defend and those close to him say
losing her father to an assassin's bullets and a gun advocate who says the best defense against a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. that's coming up in a few moments. but listen now to an emotional minute -- moment from vice president joe biden talking about gun control at a speech in lee's bow, virginia today. >> the image of those beautiful young children, 6 and 7 years old, literally riddled, riddled with bullet holes, lying in their classroom, all of us 54 days ago watching -- watching those families and only imagining we could be in the same spot in panic running around that park lot and over that firehouse and wondering, my god, my god, am i -- my god. since that day, 54 days ago, 1,600 americans have died at the end of a gun. >> powerful stuff from joe biden. we'll have more on the gun debate in a few moments. >>> we begin tonight with a political fail heard around the world. just before the election dick morris, former political guru to bill clinton, predicted a landslide victory for mitt romney. a landslide. well, we all know how that turned out. dick morris, how are y
defense. >> sean: and they can decide and manipulate it any way they want. senator reisch, what the white house is saying that these drone strikes against american citizens without any real criteria is legal, ethical and wise, but not water boarding which by the way we only used against three people. >> you know, sean, we're at the incipient stages of a new way of fighting war. they're going to be fought by using drones and as a result of that, legal questions come up. i think probably everyone gets very squeamish when you talk about somebody in the executive branch being able to put a united states citizen on a kill list. and having said that, we on the intelligence committee we review most of the strikes and so far, they've been accurate. they've done a good job at it. but having said that, i just can't fathom what would happen if a republican president had done what the obama administration has done as far as the drone program is concerned. >> sean: i mean, that's a good point. because here obama with no real criteria is going to be the judge, juror and executioner and going to allow f

defense, social security, health care is going to be everything. is that good news for americans? what should we do about it? >> it is not good news for americans. in fact, it is scary news. not just for people who care, say, but defense, but also for people to care about our ability to fund and thailand programs because by the end of this decade we will be paying close to a jillion dollars per year just in interest on our national debt. that could happen sooner to depending on what happens to interest rates in the deficits. we are getting to that point. the difference in terms of real pain now in interest among we will be paying and is more than our entire defense budget which is a pretty big deal. gerri: here is another number that blew me away. 7 million people, 7 million people will lose their employer sponsored health care. you see how this happens because ultimately that penalty that you paid as an employer is less than what you would pay for full coverage. the smart and intelligent employer says and is going to let the federal government pick up the tab. this is not what we were
dollars lawsuit saying it did a shoddy job rating mortgage bonds. in his defense are expected to argue what it says can't be attacked because the first amendment right. i don't know who i'm more surprised by. the justice department or the s&p. five years after the event you suddenly find a rating agency asleep at the wheel. so is everybody else that financial crisis for home buyers become mortgages they couldn't afford the bank issued them to the investors who lapped up every bit of housing investment they could put their hands on. the rating agencies could have stopped the merry-go-round, they could have said it was obvious among a handful of investors individual mortgage of supporting these investments were junk. not worth the paper they were written on, but the agency didn't do that, but different from the banks or the borrowers, their job is to write investments. estimate their value, their worthiness but they didn't stick their neck out and they didn't do their job or run against the% tide. the first amendment defend themselves is ridiculous. docking there is possibility hiding be
, the drones, things people are talking about today. the next secretary of defense is not going to have to deal with iraq. iraq is a fait accompli, but john mccain is obsessed with the past and with the glory of war idea that is from the 20th century. he needs to move on. >> here is lindsey graham badgering defense nominee hagel on whether the iranian revolutionary national guard should be designated a terrorist organization. i think this is aimed directly at south carolina's right wing. let's listen. >> if there was a vote on the floor of the senate this afternoon to label the iranian revolutionary guard, the people who have killed our soldiers in iraq, some of the most vicious people to the people of iran themselves, if there were a vote tomorrow or this afternoon or after lunch, would you still vote no? >> well, i would want to know from the president what they were doing, but, again -- >> i mean, you read the paper, you watch tv. you got any doubt what they're doing? if you had a chance tomorrow, today, after lunch to vote to say that the iranian revolutionary guard was a terrorist organiza
's something to be encouraged by. we actually think the opposite. so defense spending dragged down the report. that's not getting any better. the sequestration will likely go through. inventory rebuild, i think that that is premature to expect that. there's still excess inventories in autos, like trucks, for example, and then global trade, which looks considerably fairly weak and will probably stay weak. whereas the parts of the report that were viewed as strong, capital spending but most importantly consumption are likely to be very weak in the first half of the year. we just raised taxes by $200 billion. you hear the president, he wants more tax hikes, he wants more spending cuts. we think capital spending will get better through the course of the year. but what we heard through corporate america is that the near term outlook is still pretty soft. there's parts of the report that people took encouragement from are going to get worse during the first half of the year and that we're not going to necessarily print another zero on gdp. >> everyone sees the markets rocketing on friday who called
. >> how many defense is probably the least plausible from your point of view? >> for me in the home, what people are talking about is, you know, the way this world is going that the military and united nations are going to come in and try to take our guns. >> do you really believe that? >> i don't know. anything is possible. there's a lot of things in my life -- >> can you imagine u.s. marines charging on to your property and try to steal your guns? >> i hope not but an executive order. >> i spent some time with you. i hear this all the time in texas. i gave an interview to a friend of yours earlier, 30, 50 texans and that was the one thing they all seemed to agree on, that tyranny was about to come their way. >> look at all the other countries and it started where we are right now. and it's ended up with no guns. >> but do you think the american military would attack its own people? >> if they're forced to. i don't know. i hope not. i hope that would not happen. i would think at least 40% or 50% would. >> do you think that's what many texans feel about why they would need a weapon like t
for the defense secretary, the leader said it was entirely possible. >> it is unclear yet. senator hagel didn't do a very good job before the armed services committee, i think the opposition to him has intensified, whether it means he will achieve 60 votes or 51 is not clear. >> meaning they will filibuster, the republicans call themselves conservatives. but that word, i don't think it means what you think it means, overthrowing decades of unprecedented issues, it is certain, noises for filibustering, that is a leap, if they filibuster chuck hagel, they will not succeed. we know it because of math. there are 55 senators in the democracy caucus, they support chuck hagel, you need 60 to override a filibuster, so if you carry the one, the democrats only need one on their side to support a filibuster, there are two on record supporting chuck hagel for defense secretary, and we've seen reports for another six republican senators who have said that even though they may, oppose hagel, they wouldn't support a filibuster, there are two that seem unlikely to filibuster as well. that means a total of ten rep
